Nobel / PulitzerPosted: May 12, 2018
Both the Nobel
and the Pulitzer Prize committees investigating sexual* abuse charges. Is this because:
- literature is full of creeps
- arts and letters communities are especially sensitive / responsive to charges like this
- unusually weird status imbalances and games in these communities
- lots of occasions for sin: alcohol, parties, conferences, etc
- culture of bad behavior semi-tolerated in the arts
- people with power will always take things too far
- all, none, other?
* kind of unfair for Katarina Frostenson to be blamed for her husband’s crimes imo, but I don’t know the deets. the betting tips is another matter. almost funny.
